Public Engagement Programme

Throughout the year, the PE team organises a range of opportunities for Gurdon Institute students and staff to get involved in Public Engagement with Research (PER). 

PER has plenty to offer to scientists who get involved:

  • It's a chance to develop transferable skills such as: communication, team work, social media skills, film, sound or photo editing skills, project management, creativity, leadership, strategic thinking, and evaluation skills
  • The benefits are similar to interdisciplinary research: learning to express ideas clearly and concisely and ask questions you may not have considered otherwise
  • Grant applications ask for PER plans to justify the relevance and impact of research
  • Often, scientists say that PER activities remind them of what excites them about science

In addition to the activities below, our scientists are also eligible to participate in University trainings about public engagement.
